The IS 300 benefits from having both port- and direct-injection, and the former helps keep the valves clean. So, no, the IS 300 AWD (and the 350 as well) don't have the issue. :thumbup:

I drive a 300 AWD, mostly city, and I get 19 MPG on average. The EPA rates it worse than the 200t. I think the phrase "you mileage may vary" can be taken literally here. :)
